On Instagram, John Terry was asked to give his thoughts about Thiago Silva.
“Absolutely love him,” Terry’s answer unsurprisingly began.
“To be playing so well at his age in the best league is unbelievable. Just wish I could have played alongside him.
“He does everything so well without taking any risk & keeping things simple. We are very lucky to have him at the club.”
Few people believed that Silva would remain such an important player for Chelsea in his second year at the club – and that giving him another one-year extension would be a no-brainer – when he joined the club as a free agent aged 35.
The Brazilian got everything he wanted from Chelsea, as he finally lifted the long-coveted Champions League trophy. Needless to say, Chelsea are also pretty satisfied with that deal.
